Bought this because I thought it had multiplayer. I love the graphics. I love the airplane mechanics. But the multiplayer is grayed out on linux and is waiting to be ported. So don't buy this for multiplayer on linux (or mac, from what I lookd up)

Other than that, great game. But I love multiplayer so I would not buy this based on that.

WARNING if you're planning to play this on a Mac!! This game doesn't launch on Mac computers. According to the forums this is a known issue since several months to this date. I found out after I bought it when the game didn't start and I started searching the Steam forum for help. Talk about feeling dissapointed (and ripped off) - this is absolutely unacceptable!!

Steam, you need to see to that this game is fixed by the developer or pull it from the store and reimburse your customers immediately!

Lots of quickfire fun, but the campaign was getting repetitive.

Had a nice system that allowed switching between pilots when you ran out of ammo, and the pilots automatically upgraded skills if you keep them alive.

Game is pretty much unplayable. First off, you need to opt into a beta to use the version meant for you OS. Second, even if you change ANYTHING in the graphic options, it does very little. If you have it in windowed mode, the resolution is too messed up to move past the first screen. The frame rate drop horribly in the title screen, preventing me from even creating a profile. I wasted $20 dollars on this game. I wouldn't even pick it up if it was a Free-To-Play. Warthunder is free and it's a better deal. Go get that.

I wouldn't consider this a simulator if I was at gunpoint. The flight mechanics are... rough to say the least. The keyboard mapping is almost absent from what I can tell. Flying by mouse, there are maybe five or so keys including a second primary fire button... just in case your left click breaks. Taking off from a carrier I found myself rocketed abruptly upwards by some mystical force halfway across the deck and then when landing stopped about as abruptly as hitting a brick wall. The voice acting in the campaign felt a bit forced and was empty of depth or feeling (especially in the Japanese campaign) and didn't really contribute anything to a storyline. The missions are extremely repetetive as well (bomb a target, switch planes, bomb said target again).

On the better side, the game did have some pretty cool explosions and the planes burning out of the sky were as asthetically pleasing as it gets. Bullet and cannon impacts in both soil and water are pretty well mimmicked although the auto aim defeats the whole purpose of WWII dogfighting. Ships will sink if they are destroyed, which is nice, although I found it odd that the USS Arizona was capsized by torpedos and fully submerged in shallow water in about one full minute...

All in all I'd say this game is worth 3 out of 10 stars. Would not ever recommend this to anyone looking for a "flight sim" despite what any of the trailers or pictures make it out to be.

I adquired this game with the last humble bundle for a few dollars. According to that, I think it was a good deal taking into account how much I expended.

The game itself has beautiful graphics and if you like WWII aircraft, you´re going to enjoy the views. On the other hand, controls can be a little bit hard to get even if you have a gamepad (I strongly recommend trying different settings at the realism part of the game settings window) and after some missions, it gets kind of repititive.

In summary, not a good buy for 20$, but a reasonably good one for 5$ or less. I would rate it with a 6.5/10
